CHANDRA SUCCESSFULLY DEPLOYED FROM COLUMBIA

Space Shuttle Columbia has completed its primary mission - to deploy

and launch the Chandra X-Ray observatory. Once it was separated from

the shuttle, Chandra fired its upper stage booster to carry it to a

higher 25-hour orbit. Chandra will be 10-100 times more powerful

than any ground-based X-Ray telescope.

MIR AND COLUMBIA CREWS COMMUNICATE IN SPACE

Although they were 7,700 miles apart, Columbia astronauts and Mir

cosmonauts spent a few minutes today catching up on old times. The

chat was between two Frenchmen: Michel Tognini on Columbia and

Jean-Pierre Haignere on Mir, but shuttle commander Eileen Collins

broke in to speak a few words to the Mir commander.

MIR SPACEWALKERS SEARCH FOR LEAK UNSUCCESSFUL

Russian cosmonauts spent six fruitless hours in space attempting

to find the source of a mysterious air leak on board Mir. Deputy

flight director Viktor Blagov has informed reporters that the leak

is above the allowable limit, and that the process is not developing

for the better. If the leak isn't found and fixed, the station

will be uninhabitable within 3 months.

NEARBY asteroid CONSIDERED A STEPPING STONE TO SPACE COLONIZATION

When it passed within 500,000 miles of the Earth last year, Astronomers

had the opportunity to study asteroid 1998 KY26. They found it spins

rapidly, but more importantly, the asteroid is loaded with ice - probably

a million gallons worth. This makes the asteroid a nearby "oasis"

for space colonization.
